DesireLines For Four Violins
Desire Lines for Four Violins is collaboration between Rob Canning and Emma Lloyd. It is performed from a web based digital score system created by Canning which allows the performer/collaborator to choose routes through an open-form "hyper-textual" musical structure. In this version Emma Lloyd selected three groups of four simultaneous routes resulting in a quartet for violin in three "transects". Each transect contains eight units of musical material. The similarity or contrast between these units of material depends on the routes chosen by the performer. The score is based on Benjamin Franklin's 8x8 near Pan-Magic Square created in 1736-37
Recorded using free and open source software in a bedroom somewhere in East London.
